Need a stronger signal for the wireles in our house

We have a 2 wire modem that is in one corner of the house. In that room and some ajoining rooms the signals good to great. The house is 6000 sq feet and all block and concrete construction (Mexico). So many of the rooms have zero signal. Is there a router or modem on the market that will take the incoming DSL signal from the 2 wire and amplefy so that all rooms get the signal. Thanks for your replies.

Your better off getting a repeater for your wireless and strategically place it in a room where it can amplify to the next and so on. Concrete is virtually impossible to pass through with the signals wireless transmit so a repeater strategically placed is the best way in my opinion.

    No problem mate. Just make sure you place the repeater in one of the rooms where you are already getting a fine signal. Based on what you said it will probably give you a few more rooms to use your wireless in. Good luck!

What caused wireless connection to fail?

Hi! I have an HP8610 printer that was having the same problem. What was causing the problem of disconnection was the wireless router being in one room and the printer was in another room further away. The signal was being weakened by having to travel through walls, various furniture, other electronic devices, etc. to get to the printer. Sometimes the signal from the service provider was stronger on some days than others. My solution was to remove any possible interference of the signal to the printer. I relocated the router closer to the printer, such that the signal didn't have to travel through 2-3 walls, and reduced any other obstacles. I also relocated the printer from the corner of the room, to a more open area to allow the signal easier access to the printer.
After I made these simple changes, I did not experience any further disconnections. I hope this helps you.

What kind of wireless access point or extender should I use to project wifi in far bedrooms of a long, train-car like house?

Hi James, the wireless extender is the best way but you should go for the plug in type.....this plugs into the mains and gives you wifi and 1 wired connection, so you can plug into the room you want wifi to reach, I have linked a Netgear option but there are others! EX2700

What kind of wireless access point or extender should I use to project wifi in far bedrooms of a long, narrow house?

Yes. You are right on track with hard wiring the extender unit. You can also daisy chain another router to that at a distance that is closer to the furthest room. This will give you plenty of signal through out your house.

You would be able to buy another wireless router and set it up as a bridge to boost your signal strength but I would suggest getting an ethernet over mains adapter and then you can run the internet through the wiring already in the house also being able to move it wherever you need it as long as you're near a socket.

If the walls in your house are made of lathe and plaster or concrete block, then the performance of WiFi through all the walls in your house will be very bad. The signal that you are receiving from your neighbor's modem is probably only going through two walls (the outside wall of their house and the outside wall of your house), while the signal from your modem is probably going through at least 4 or 5 walls.
I suggest that you do not buy a new modem, but buy a wireless access point, a spool of CAT6 cable and two Leviton RJ45 wall jacks. Run the CAT6 cable from the modem to your bedroom, install the Leviton RJ45 jacks on both ends of the cable, and then connect the wireless access point to the the jack in the bedroom and the modem to the jack near to it.
This will expand the wireless coverage in your house and allow you to buy much better wireless device than QWest would ever sell to you.
Here is a suggestion for Wireless Access Point.
You can buy the CAT6 cable and Leviton RJ45 jacks at Home Depot or Lowes.

The ploblem is In need the solution of wire less network to build in the big house.

I presume you need Internet access in this house using a wireless network.
The best place to locate the wireless router is in a spot centrally located where the radio signals can reach the rooms where the computers are located. The DSL or cable modem/connection would also need to be in this area so it can connect to the wireless router.
If the wireless router is in a multi-storey house and the floor slab and walls are concrete and/or brick, then the radio signals will be impeded and the signal strength to some rooms will be weak.
In such circumstances, it maybe better to install network cables from these rooms to the wireless router, or install wireless access point repeaters to increase wireless coverage.
If you are not sure how to setup and install this network, then I suggest you get help from a computer savy friend or from your computer friendly shop.

Problem with signal reaching PC when away from the router

On the wireless card there is two wires connected to it, a black wire and a white wire. Try reseating both of those wires back onto the wireless card.

If that doesn't do it then go ahead and reseat the wireless card itself back into the slot and see if that does it.

On both of these steps be sure to turn the laptop off first before doing them. Then turn the laptop on in both steps.

If that doesn't do it then your wireless card is faulty and needs to be replaced.
